I dined here last year and liked it - so, naturally I went back. Not disappointed. The decor is colorful, breezy and beachy as I remembered. Friendly waiter let me pick a table by the windows and energetically told me about specials. Over Balashi I enjoyed bread with light-colored aioli and yummy tapenade. Many items sounded tempting but I decided... More

We really enjoyed the food and talking with Marvin, the bartender/owner/DJ. He made a great sangria! When we could not decide between appetizers or entres, Marvin helped us out and did not steer us wrong (we ate at the bar since there were no tables available). My husband particularly enjoyed the tuna appetizer and I loved my chocolately dessert. This... More

Went early and we were the only ones there. Not the cleanest of places, but very eclectic. It would have been funner with people around us. I was pleasantly surprised by the food. Large portion of my chicken past and did not even eat half of it! I would recommend it!

Thank you so much for your review and sharing the experience you had with us in Que Pasa. Unfortunately, it was a very slow evening..luckily "we made it up" :) with the food. We hope we may welcome you back soon. Again, thank you for your kind words. Warm regards, Que Pasa Crew More

Great place, great location, amazing food. We walked in and were seated within seconds, maybe because of low season but still.

We walked over to QuePasa from the Renaissance. A friend had told me to try it, and another couple was walking there from the hotel and also recommended it (and helped us find it!) We didn't have a reservation but luckily they were able to seat us since it was kinda early for dinner. We had a lovely server, Juana.... More

Can't say enough about the wonderful menu here.Dinner was awesome.They didn't treat my coupon properly,only giving us one glass of wine which really pissed me off.Most restaurants would have served all four of us.The dinner made up for their poor decision.

We've been going to this restaurant for at least 7 years, and we continue to go because it's always good. Service is extremely friendly and the food plentiful and excellent. Prices are somewhat lower than equivalent first class restaurants

Description
Allthough the name Que Pasa is a familiar Mexican phrase, we are not a Mexican restaurant. Situated in a 100 year old, traditional Aruban building, in downtown Oranjestad. We offer an international menu. There is something for everybody. Besides our menu we are known for our daily changing specials. Our chefs make sure to create unique dinners every night and our attentive wait staff is there to make your evening special. We can accomodate everybody from families to large groups. You have a choice of dinning upstairs open air or downstairs a/c. The que pasa crew hopes to welcome you soon!
